Like many of you my heart hurts for Paris and boils with a complex combination of anger and sadness for what has happened. Obviously there isn’t much I can do about any of it from the comfort of my couch other than continue to try and raise my own girls to have a strong but compassionate heart that is free of hate.
Since there is nothing of value I could add to discussion of the attacks in Paris, instead I want to look back at some of the images I have from a more peaceful time in Paris when we visited in the spring of 2014. This was our first visit to Paris, and it was such a beautiful and magical time traveling with my then four year old daughter and meeting up with my mom and aunt who were in the middle of their big trip through Europe.
Paris, we loved visiting you then. We hurt for you now. We will be back again. We are all in this together.
